First Pick Red Delicious Strawberries

Thank you for your love, support and prayers. I felt every word from your heart to mine and I shared your love and prayers with my husband. We are both grateful that I have such wonderful bloggy friends.

The title of this post certainly screams out exactly what today’s post is all about. We had our first pick of our  strawberries this year ( and second and third).  Our grandchildren are enjoying them so much. The other day I was covered in strawberry flavored kisses. It’s good to be the Grandma!

We made delicious smoothies my simple low fat recipe is HERE. My low fat sugar free version is on the left my hubby’s fully loaded smoothie is on the right :-)

We have been tolerating heat in the high 90’s and even 100 degrees. Those of you who have read my about page know that  I am not comfortable! I hate hot!

I have been on the search for refreshing recipes to provide the temporary relief from the heat or at least to give the illusion of coolness. I found some wonderful goodies to share.

  4. I just bought some local strawberries and can’t wait to dig into them. Think I’ll make myself a strawberry banana smoothie this morning!!

  5. Sounds delicious!

  6. I don’t mind the heat so much because to me it’s so much better than winter. I cannot stand driving in the winter so much that it leaves me happy any time there’s not snow. :)

    The strawberries look delicious! We haven’t gone out to pick any yet, but we may this weekend.

    Congrats on the features. I’m headed over to see! :)

  7. Mmm those strawberry treats all look heavenly! Congrats on both of your shops being featured! That’s awesome! :-)

  8. Those all look chilly good!
    I’m with you – I hate hot. And we were almost a hundred degrees yesterday.

  9. Your strawberry fruit smoothies look delicious!
    Thanks for sharing all of the other treats also.

    Congratulations on your Shops being featured!
